Baseball in Time of Cholera
David Darg and Bryn Mooser, 2012, 28 min, Haiti

As a Cholera epidemic rages in Haiti, the United Nations denies it is responsible for introducing the disease despite glaring evidence suggesting Nepalese peacekeepers are to blame. Baseball in the Time of Cholera is the story of a young Haitian boy who plays in Haiti's first little league baseball team and the Haitian Lawyer seeking justice against the UN. As the epidemic spreads, the two stories intersect in the struggle for survival and justice.

Post screening Q&A with  director Bryn Mooser, Beatrice Lindstrom (Human Rights Attorney, at the Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti) and Moderated by Dr. Steeve Coupeau, President NYIHA MEDIA.

NYIHA MEDIA promotes global aspirations for human rights beyond borders. By human rights we mean the right to food, shelter, water, health care, education, decent work, free speech, and justice and peace. Can solidarity allow us to think creatively about coming together within or across social formations to transcend the limitations of inherited oppositions between sovereignty and human rights? Global civic engagement might be the best means to achieve long-distance support for multiple citizen actions in different places. NYIHA is an African word for the bush and more broadly the borderlands. The nyiha are an ethnic and linguistic group spanning several countries including southwestern Tanzania and northeastern Zambia.
